I came across an interesting article on epigenetics focusing primarily on behavior, but with having far reaching consequences on life in general.
It is interesting as we look at behavioral problems and such things as anger issues and abuse to see that not only is it a “software” problem, but it can affect the “hardware” also. Nature and Nurture may well be closely intertwined. One thing that was not mentioned was whether it has been shown if germ cells are also affected, leading to generational inheritance of some of those tendencies. Also, if such is the case if those tendencies will persist in later generations, or if positive environmental changes will reverse adverse effects. Any thoughts?
